Dallas News There is no doubt in my mind that the security guard was wrong when he decided to snatch the ball from the child. I believe he reacted in the heat of the moment. I’m sure if he had a chance to do it over he would have let the child keep the ball.
If you missed it here’s what happened:
A fan reached over the railing on a ball hit down the first-base line in the eighth inning of Wednesday’s game and he snagged the ball. A security guard moved quickly as the man gave the ball to the young fan. Along with briefly ejecting the man who had reached onto the field, he also took the ball from the young fan.
The boy will be given a ball autographed by Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman and the team also invited the young fan back for game in June to celebrate his birthday.
The fan who reached onto the field was allowed to return to his seat.
Share your thoughts and opinions with me. Should the security guard had taken the ball? Should the man be ejected then allowed back into the game?
